Ms. Emily Birge- First Grade Self-Contained

Welcome to First Grade! My name is Emily Birge, and I am a First Grade Self-Contained teacher. I am ecstatic to continue my third year of teaching here at Hackberry Elementary. 

I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Texas A&M University-Commerce in December 2019. My fiance's name is Benjamin, and together we adopted two crazy kittens, Mikey and Maddie. In my free time I love playing disc golf and basketball. Little Elm has a ton of disc golf courses that Ben and I partake in, and we love being out in nature to do so. Another hobby of mine is watching/supporting the Dallas Stars hockey team (GO STARS!). If I'm not playing sports or watching hockey, you can find me on the couch, cuddling with my kitties in my pjs. Another fun fact about me is I come from a long line of teachers, and I couldn't be prouder to be following in their footsteps at such a wonderful school. 

My Favorites: Color: Blue; Candy: Hersheys Chocolate; Drink: Red Bull, Coffee, Dr. Pepper; Shopping: Hobby Lobby, Walmart, Bath & Body Works; Candle Scent: Seasonal Smells, Lavender, Eucalyptus, Vanilla; Sports: Dallas Stars Hockey
